School Aid Specialists


School Aid Specialists (SAS) is a statewide consulting firm that specializes in maximizing state aid and other revenues for school districts.  SAS offers a range of services tailored to specific district needs – from a comprehensive service package to a risk free fee model for revenue recoveries.  And if no money is found, there are no fees.

The SAS team has served hundreds of school districts, rural, urban, and suburban, recovering millions of dollars annually on behalf of New York State School districts.  SAS consultants are aware of the special nuances in regulations that could substantially increase revenue based on current law.  In these fiscally challenging times, choosing the skills of independent advisors could be the most efficient and time-saving way to address school district needs.

With over 60 years of combined experience serving hundreds of school districts, SAS recovers significant funds annually on behalf of school districts.
